Mike Tyson Smokes Monster Joint at Cannabis Event
Mike Tyson has become one of the most prominent celebrity advocates for marijuana since his retirement from professional boxing in 2006. On a recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, Iron Mike promoted the Tyson Ranch, a cannabis ranch and resort opening in 2020 in California City. Former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight champion recently took to social media to applaud Tyson’s “KO Kush” strain saying he enjoyed trying it when meeting Tyson late last year.

I went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland. I love and respect Mike Tyson. And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second. It was good to meet you Mike. You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun. You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this! I will always have the height of respect for you! Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with. As a fighter you must fight here. The most. And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our blood line. Make sure you stay switched on with those around you at all times. You have good people around you now, I can tell. But stay switched on. Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch “KO Kush” is really nice. It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor. Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face. You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it! Don’t let anyone take anything from you. You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed. Always remember that. I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson!

Tyson’s history with cannabis is pretty well documented. After defeating Andrew Golota in 2000 Tyson tested positive for weed, leading for the result to be changed to a no contest. In another tale of his time smoking, Tyson has talked about the time the late Tupac Shakur asked him to smoke with him, though at the time Tyson was trying to hide his habit and declined.
“He always wanted me to smoke weed with him, and I never did it, and I wish I did…That’s my biggest regret.”
In the years since with cannabis starting to become legalised across the United States, Tyson has become much more open with his use of the drug.
The former world heavyweight champion has recently started his own podcast, Hotboxin’, which sees him interview famous names from both the sporting and entertainment industries.
So at this point, it’s pretty well established that Tyson is a pretty big stoner, but this weekend he took it to a completely different level. At an event hosted by Cypress Hill member and famed stoner B-Real Tyson was seen puffing on a foot-long joint.
For those interested in hearing more about Tyson’s crazy life, it is definitely worth checking out the aforementioned Joe Rogan podcast. Tyson talks about his history with drugs, including the fact he started smoking and drinking aged 9 or 10, and that he first took acid when he was just 11-years-old.
